I am brilliant, cuddly, and dangerous
Although I prefer Science Fiction and Fantasy, I read just about anything. On the other hand, I rarely read biographies.
In music, I prefer Early Music, folk, blues and soft rock. I do not like most jazz, hip hop, heavy metal or punk.
Some favorites: Anonymous 4, J.S. Bach, Hildegard von Bingen, Puccini, Purcell, Nancy Griffith, Howl'n Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Robert Johnson, Nick Drake, Tori Amos.
As to film, I am a major film fan and have seen hundreds of movies from the silents to modern experimental cinema. Some recent favorites: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Batman Begins, Kingdom of Heavan.
Not so recent: Alien, Aliens, Casablanca, Silverado, Men In Black, The Lord of the Rings (ok mostly the first movie) I was a big fan of the original Star Wars trilogy and I am thus horrified by the cinematic abortion that has passed for the subsequently released prequels.
On the small screen I loved Carnivale, Deadwood, Angel, Dead Like Me, Dr. Who, The Prisoner, Darling Buds of May, Sandbaggers, Firefly, Supernatural.
Most of the food that I cook is quite spicy. I particularly like garlic and peppers of various sorts. This no doubt explains my preference for Indian food and perhaps my attraction to Indian women. Unfortunately, my bride cannot take spicy foods. Alas.
